  • Maintaining the best quality of life in Nebraska communities
  • Propelling economic, social, and cultural growth for Nebraska to keep pace worldwide
  • Safeguarding an educated and democratic society
  • Stimulating thought, awareness, and involvement in issues of public interest
  • Paving avenues for intellectual and cultural growth and enjoyment
  • Caring for the personal, educational, and vocational needs of Nebraskans
  • Ensuring Nebraskans can compete on a global scale

 * 51-201.02, 51-801 and 86-512 in particular

Nebraska eReads - eBooks & digital audiobooks including Nebraska OverDrive Libraries Group | Edge Initiative assessment tool to strengthen Nebraska Public Libraries | Online Self-Directed Education & Training | Student Internships
